    Yay! The Republican/Christian Reich is slowly, but surely, destroying this country! Who needs terrorists when we have self-righteous, zealous politicians?

    Wait, what ??.. is this for real ???... It really says in the anti-bullying law, that it`s okay to bully, if the bullying victim is/does something that`s against the bully`s moral/religious convictions ???.. isn`t nearly everything against someone`s moral/religious convictions ??

    if this is true, america has done the impossible.. it has hit a new low..

    Anti-gay sentament as always been defended this way. It`s not bigotry or prejudice...it`s a higher moral choice.

    As for anti-bully laws...assualt is already illegal. Those PC documents do nothing.

    Kudos to her for standing up to the insanity of this law. It`s OK if it`s for moral or religious reasons? Aren`t those the reasons most people get bullied in the first place? Idiocracy came early, methinks.

    Wait, so what will the government say if- and i`m not saying it will happen, and i doubt it will-a bunch of Muslim kids or Jewish kids gang up on a Christian kid? just saying. I really hope something gets done about this bill.

    I`d really like to see something to come up that completely questions the legality of this bill.

    What do you expect from the state with the highest unemployment rate ,highest foreclosure rate, highest teen pregnancy rate, highest infant mortality rate. That state is f#cking cess pool and the government is as corrupt as a third world border town. It`s sad that a good politician has been beaten by a bunch of red neck plantation owners. Sad.

    My son last weekend told me he wanted to die because of a bully. It was mostly his emotion running away from him. I told him to use his karate to defend himself and he got suspended for blocking a punch.

    tleking I have been in fights while in middle and high school where I didn`t even block and still got suspended. Their policy is if you are in a fight in any way your out. It`s silly and it`s only so they don`t have to take on the responsibility of sorting the mess to find out who was really behind it.

    WTF? What kind of garbage leadership must you have even to allow such a law to be considered?

    I could single handedly rule over your pathetic land more effectively than all congressmen put together.

    *sigh* excuse me. I reacted emotionally there. But hey, prove me wrong.

    @tleking536 If he`s going to get suspended for a block, you should have told him to have suckered the bully with a chair over the head.

    @Kain1 Indeed, while they cannot actually stone or stab a Christian for insulting the prophet, dancing/singing, for girls attending school, for blasphemy against Islam, or refusing to convert (all moral/religious issues), one or a gang of Muslims may now legally terrorise your child and bully him into self-harm. I`m not saying many Muslims would do so, but it`s now legal for them to do so, so when your child comes home in tears begging you to convert, you`ll know which party to thank.

    You will never stop bullying with any law, did handgun laws stop armed robberies ?, No they haven`t.

    All this does is criminalize someone`s speech, and that will not pass muster against our 1st amendment rights.

    I think bullying should be allowed. It builds character and instigates a `playground natural selection`. I was bullied and to be honest, I now respect that kid that bullied me as it taught me the way of the playground, what to wear, how to behave and how to stand up for myself.

    Bullying teaches you perhaps the most useful thing school ever contributes to your life - independence. Because without it, you`ll just plod along and not get anywhere, with it, it provides a challenge and while some people rise to is, others will fall.

    And to all those people saying that bullying causes distress and suicides (which it does), better ten year old kids tell you you have a problem so you can sort it out early and/ or grow to accept it, than to be told by the girl you love at 25 and be heartbroken.

    @CrackrJak did you miss the point or did I? I thought someone`s speech (bullies with a "moral/religious reason") was being LEGALISED with this bill not made illegal..

    Anyway I have no idea how this poo gets passed.. c*nts are still running the world

    The whole purpose of bullying is to establish the pecking order. People who are against an anti-bullying law have some kind of stake in that pecking order, i.e., they are somewhere near the top, and they like it that way. That`s why religious people want to have their exception - they want their religion to stay at, or get to, the top of the pecking order. It`s that simple. The rest is smoke and mirrors.

    We all had to deal with bullying, it taught us to stand up for ourselves, or we became rag-dolls. Unfortunately, the lock-down on bullying, the no-child-left-behind policy, and political correctness has left us with a nation of wet-noodle children. I fear for our future.

    I agree that bullying might be good for a person, but there is a difference between getting bullied by one guy, and getting bullied by the entire class.

    When the entire class bullies someone, something needs to be done.

    And on top of that, they need to invest more in psychological therapy for children and getting people to admit their problems.

    im a girl... i was bullied... and by bullied i mean all through gradeschool and middle school while i would sit at my desk, the girls would grab me by my hair and slam my head into the desk while one held me down and the other punched me. they would meet met after school and corner me in just so they could "jump me" on a regular basis. their reason for doing all of this? because my clothes werent as nice as theirs and that my hair wasnt as nice as theirs. all they did was call me ugly all through school. i weighed next to nothing and didnt think i would have to defend myself in school because i didnt have nice clothes. bullying is a disgusting display of human expression. the pecking order? really? what the hell happened to "why cant we just all get along and work together?"

    There`s already laws covering physical violence. An anti-bullying law based around speech will be too open to loopholes. And a law based on bullying from children is only treating a symptom of a greater problem.

    Children will simply mimic the behaviors of adults. If society as a whole accepts LGBT people, their children will follow suit. It`s not likely to be something we can change within a generation; look at the civil rights movements for women and black americans. There are laws for harassment in place already. A law like this does not simply remove all instances of the problem it intends to fix, but rather molds it over time. If this senate (and judging by the other youtube videos in response to this bill, republicans) wish to fix this problem, LGBTs need equal rights in all parts of society. Then we, as a society, wait generations for it (being gay/black/a woman) to become mostly acceptable.

    This bill has made a mockery of efforts to prevent bullying by giving bullies a big fat loophole in which to do their deeds. As long as they can find a loophole in some religious claim.
    Yes indeed, Gretchen Whitmer rocks! Time to bully all the Rs in the Michigan Senate!
